Ahern President and CEO Tripp Ahern is pleased to introduce Jace Hierlmeier as the Company’s new Executive Vice President of Ahern Fire Protection. Hierlmeier will be assuming the duties of Executive Vice President Al Fox, who will be retiring from the Company later this year after 32 years of service.
